Update on the building works at CARE

Construction commenced in December 2012 on our purpose built veterinary specialist and emergency centre in Melbourne. The hospital has been designed by Dr. Guy Yates and Dr. Merrin Hicks on conjunction with Architect Mr. Bruce Kirkman to provide a state-of-the-art, 1100 square meter facility set over 2 levels, housing the latest in diagnostic equipment and veterinary facilities available. The building was previously used for retail and manufacture, and has been completely rebuilt to service the pet owners and primary care veterinarians of Melbourne with the best in referral and emergency care available. We have excellent on and off-street parking including an undercover pet drop-off area at the front of the facility (enter of Hoddle st onto Hood St. Collingwood).
